An Interesting New Blog

You might like to have a look at this new local blog.
It is called Moths of Toowoomba.
It illustrates how growing local plants in gardens enriches the local fauna.
Moths, both adults and larvae, are a major food for birds and micro-bats, so every plant that attracts moths, besides bringing some delightful little creatures to the windows at night, enriches the total biodiversity.

This moth's host plants are Psydrax species (also known as canthiums), which are very attractive garden plants in their own right.
(Use the search box top left to find what I've written about several Psydrax species, on this blog).
